CDfs allows mounting a CD with something like:

# mount -t cdfs -o ro /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdfs

[From <http://users.elis.ugent.be/~mronsse/cdfs/>.]

How would a person mount a CD using the software mentioned above (if 
that would be possible at all)?

Also, I haven't been able to find cdfs in 5.9.  Is it to be found in a 
later version?
